Dreams of Friendly Aliens at Dorothy Strelsin Theatre
Abingdon Theatre Company presents Dreams of Friendly Aliens, by Daniel Damiano, opening at Abingdon's Dorothy Strelsin Theatre on 18 Mar 2007, following previews from 10 Mar and running through to 1 Apr 2007.
In Dreams of Friendly Aliens a northern New Jersey family redefines dysfunctional - a husband obsessively waits in his bathrobe for his wife's return from the grocery store; his son hones his skills as a white rap artist who has visions of alien abductions; and the grandmother recites the same shopping list again and again. A high school guidance counselor and a police officer intervene to restore order, but the fractured family only spins further out of control. The wife's return would help matters, but where is she?
Directed by Kim T. Sharp, Dreams of Friendly Aliens features Gene Gallerano, Maureen Griffin, Brandon Jones, Lenore Loveman and Jamie Ward.
Set design by Charlie Corcoran, with costumes by Isabel Rubio, lighting by Matthew McCarthy and sound by Graham Johnson.
